Premium Confetti is comprised of flower petals that widely range in size and shape, appearing elongated and oval, heart-shaped, broad and round, to square-shaped. The petals have a delicate nature and are smooth, velvety, crisp, and pliable with lightly frilled edges. The petals also vary in color from solid, vibrant hues of purple, crimson, orange, yellow, to pink, or they can be found in bi-colored tones of pink and white or yellow and orange. Premium Confetti bears a faint, fresh floral scent and provides a mild, neutral flavor with subtly sweet, tart, herbal, and peppery nuances.
Premium Confetti is available year-round.

Premium Confetti includes petals of many different varieties of flowers which may contain vitamins A and C, nutrients with antioxidant-like properties to strengthen the immune system, boost collagen production within the skin, and reduce inflammation. The petals may also provide lower amounts of potassium to balance fluid levels within the body and other minerals, including iron, calcium, and phosphorus.
Premium Confetti offers a mix of subtly flavored, mild flower petals that can be utilized fresh in a wide variety of culinary preparations. It is important to note that the flowers should be placed on the dish or beverage just before serving to prevent the delicate petals from wilting. Premium Confetti flower petals can be sprinkled over salads, topped over pasta dishes, floated over soups, or gently rolled onto cheese logs for a decorative appearance. The petals can also be mixed into compound butter and other soft cheeses, whipped into icing or pressed into dough. In desserts, Premium Confetti can be incorporated into gelato, ice cream, and sorbet, frozen into popsicles, pressed into marshmallows, candied, or used as decoration for cookies, cakes, and chocolate. In addition to sweet and savory dishes, Premium Confetti can be frozen into ice cubes or sprinkled over cocktails, teas, lemonades, and sparkling beverages. Premium Confetti pairs well with fruits such as pineapple, strawberry, orange, passionfruit, raspberry, and cherry, lemon, honey, vanilla, chocolate, leafy greens, and fresh spring vegetables. The flower petals should be used immediately for the best quality and flavor but will keep 4 to 5 days when stored in the refrigerator.
Edible flowers were widely used during the Victorian Era and were incorporated into bouquets, decorations, and edible garnishes. Chefs used flowers to capture the feeling of elegance, romance, and whimsicality, and the petals added subtle flavorings to a wide variety of dishes, including salads, soups, syrups, and jellies. Edible flowers were also favored as decorations for desserts. Cakes, cookies, and tarts were displayed on tiered platters with embellished details, and flower petals were used fresh and candied to accent the dessert. During the Victorian Era, dessert was considered the most important part of the meal and using fresh garnishes allowed hosts to display their status through creative, edible pieces. In the modern-day, edible flower petals, such as Premium Confetti, are a widespread farm-to-table garnish used by chefs to decorate wedding cakes. The petals can be pressed fresh or dried into icings, or they can be delicately piled around the edge of the cake as a colorful addition. Flower petals are also being pressed into icing on top of cookies as a unique wedding favor to send home with guests. Flower petals have become a trending wedding element as they are a nod to the lavish Victorian Era while being presented in a refreshing, modern way.
Edible flowers have been utilized in beverages and culinary preparations for thousands of years. The first record of edible flowers dates back to 140 BCE, and flowers have been used over time in Ancient Rome as well as Middle Eastern and Eastern Asian cultures. Edible flowers reached the height of their popularity during the Victorian Era in 19th-century Europe, but not long after, they faded from the spotlight until the early 21st century. Premium Confetti was developed at Fresh Origins Farm in San Diego, California, the leading American producer of naturally grown microgreens and edible flowers since the mid-1990s. Fresh Origins has been using the mild, Southern California climate year-round to produce beautiful, healthy, and flavorful edible flowers and the farm closely partners with chefs to grow unique varieties. Fresh Origins also has the highest level third-party-audited food safety program and is a certified member of the California Leafy Greens Marketing Agreement, which follows science-based food safety practices to promote transparency and honesty in production. Today Premium Confetti can be found through select distribution partners of Fresh Origins across the United States, including Specialty Produce, and are also found through partners in Canada.
